Consulting one’s parents in regards to nikaah

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I’m a twenty two year old female, and I have met someone I am ready to get married to. Alhamdulillah he is an Aalim and a qari. My parents, on the other hand don’t want to give it a chance. They refuse to even meet him. I don’t know what to do because I just have positive thoughts about this. I acknowledge that meeting him out of nikkah was wrong but I just want to make it right. Please advice. 


A: Listen to your parents.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
